Ghostly Kisses is the dreamy music of Canadian singer and songwriter Margaux Sauvé. She began to play the violin at the age of 5 following in the footsteps of her family of musicians. It was several years later that she started to sing and wrote her first songs. The name 'Ghostly Kisses' was inspired from reading William Faulkner’s poem 'Une ballade des dames perdues’, and seemed like a beautiful reflection of Margaux's ethereal voice.
... A sort of ethereal seduction They hear, alas My women And brush my lips with little ghostly kisses Stealing away Singly, their tiny ardent faces Like windflowers from some blown garden of dreams ...
In 2017, her song Such Words reached more than 50,000 plays on Spotify 24 hours after its release. Ghostly Kisses was also part of the International Festival of Jazz of Montreal and Festival d’Été of Quebec and opened for international renowned artists such as RY X, Charlotte Cardin, Trixie Whitley and Milk & Bone in Canada and the US.
In 2018, she released The City Holds My Heart – EP, a 5 pieces album produced by Louis-Étienne Santais and inspired by the sonic textures of the 90's. Unfolding around Margaux’s soft voice, these songs progressively reveal different drums, synths, string arrangements and piano layers. In 2019, she toured in Canada and the United States and sold out half of her shows in Canada (Toronto, Montreal, Lévis and Beloeil). She was also officially chosen to showcase at SXSW in Austin in March 2019.
In the last years, Ghostly Kisses’ songs have been part of many Spotify playlists like New Music Friday, Evening Commute, Chill Covers, Lush+Atmospheric just to name a few, and cumulate more than 10M plays to date.
